Battery Disconnect

I have a 2019 Jayco Jay Flight - do you know if there is a battery disconnect switch?

Congratulations on the new JayFlight and welcome to the forum.

My money is on 'No' factory battery disconnect switch. Have you asked your dealer or Jayco?

Thanks so much!! I love it

I have not asked them yet. I'm finding my battery drains when I'm not using it and wanted to have a quick way to disconnect vs having to remove the connection from the terminal.

Welcome to JOF!

I installed one on my Jay Flight. There are a number of articles here on the forum that describe the process and of course YouTube has a bunch!

There is enough parasitic drain to make the battery absolute when going below 11.9 volts.
Keep it plugged in or install the disconnect.

Thanks so much - I'll look them up and see how to do it. I really would love to have one.

Thanks! Still figuring out how to use this thread - so not sure if you received my other message. It's already drained twice. I'm going to look into installng one.

That is probably a great decision. Draining the battery completely will significantly damage it and multiple times may wreck it completely.

I've installed this guy - https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and it is working very nicely. It doesn't have the little rubber boot that this video shows (https://youtu.be/j5hIxEtZDDo), I still need to figure that out.

Good luck!

I just ordered this online for our new x213:

I plan to install it in the battery box. I'll post pictures when I'm done.
